Ham & Potato Casserole

Ham & Potato Casserole

Last evening I had a chub of turkey ham to use. (It really is called a chub.) I decided potatoes would go well with it, and I put to use my create a casserole ideas. The result was pretty good but not great in my opinion. I wasn’t going to use it for this post until son #2, who is a real foodie, came home from karate and ate his dinner. He thought it was great!

I might like it better with a different sauce, but this was quick and easy. I was running very late with fixing dinner, but if I had more time I would have added some sauteed onions and maybe mushrooms. Now don’t get the wrong impression. I liked it; I just think it could be better. If I altered it to my tastes, however, my son might not be so thrilled with it.

Recipe type: Main Dish
 
Ingredients
  • 6 cups peeled & shredded raw potato
  • 4 cups chopped cooked ham
  • ¼ cup ranch salad dressing
  • ¼ cup plain yogurt
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 cup shredded cheese
Instructions
  1. Peel the potatoes and shred them in a food processor or grate them by hand. They will quickly turn brown. You can keep that from happening by putting them in a bowl and adding about ½ tsp. cream of tartar to enough water to cover the potatoes. Swish them around a bit and then drain.
  2. Mix the potatoes and ham together in a bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the salad dressing, yogurt, and mayonnaise. Add this to the potatoes and ham and stir well to coat.
  4. Put it all into a greased rectangular baking dish.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, cover the dish with foil and cook another 15 minutes.
  6. Check the potatoes for doneness, sprinkle the cheese over top and return the dish to the oven for a few minutes to melt the cheese.

    This recipe sounds really good! I’ll have to try it. I love the ham/cheese/potatoes combo but have never done a casserole quite like this.

    Mmmm. I bet this would be good even without the cheese. I like the idea of adding the onions and mushrooms — I’ll have to try it!

    I love the “What’s for Dinner Wednesday” idea. I’ll have to partake next week!

    Thanks for this idea! How fun and your recipe is a great idea, quick, easy and possible on a busy day. Most my days are NOT gourmet food days in my house!

    This is a great idea. Can’t wait to watch it grow over the weeks. I’m sure it’s going to really catch on.

    Great idea for the meal sharing. There are plenty of healthy, gluten free meals that don’t take much time to prepare so even the busiest people no longer have any excuse not to eat right!

    Sorry I made a typo, the new link should work, cross my fingers, I’m a “baby blogger” :)

    Thanks for the reminder, Linda! Mr. Linky doesn’t show up in my reader, and I forgot. Better late than never, though, right?

    Do you think I could substitute sour cream for yogurt? I have everything else and am cleaning out my pantry cooking from the holidays ….
